Where Can I get traffic from for my free report?

21 replies
I've recently created a free report that talks about how to create a mega list that enabled me to make couple of thousand dollars in each email.

I have already released a WSO based on that, but apart from the forum - are there any where that allows me to submit it to a space for people to search for and/or download from?

In another word, where can I get some extra traffic outside of the forum?
(without building a website, doing SEO to rank top on google - because that's going to take too long)

thanks

    Hi Icn,

    You might consider submitting your PDF report into various pdf directories like Docstoc, Scribd, Slideshare and other directories.

    There are also many ebook directories where you can submit the report to get more exposure.

    For me personally, I will create another report to distribute to these websites and I will invite them back to the squeeze page to opt in to get more content.

    Hope my humble contribution is useful to you

    Take a look at some of the guys who do a lot of big WSO launches and get them to offer it to their lists as a value add freebie? I know you said off the forum, but that's one idea.

    I know there are ezines out there that are looking for decent content, maybe take that path?

      Ye awesome idea. Just JV with a couple of peeps on here who have products / reports and get them to give it away.

      Get some quality syndicated traffic on the go

      Good luck!!

    Hmmm I'm going to throw a spanner in the works here, and give you something to think about.

    Why did you go to the trouble of creating a product before you knew where the target market could be found, or even who they were?

    You put the cart before the horse...

    Find a target market
    prepare a plan to get the target market to your site
    finally create the product

      Yeah - this is what I'm looking for.

      as to the funnel - do you mean to write another report to lead them to the my report (that is on the pdf director)? and how can you invite them to the squeezepage?

      More explanation are appreciated.

      interesting - I might go for that for some extra exposure!

      Well - I do have my target market chosen - Internet Marketers.
      However, I want to expand it outside of the forum by driving the targeted targets to my report (but without doing the SEO method)

      So yeah , thanks anyway

      My thoughts exactly. :confused:

    By the way - the way how my funnel works is as followed:

    Free WSO > Squeezepage > Free report > Extra product > More product (at the thank you page)

    So, if I'm giving out my free report online some where or allowing JV's to send out my report (which will skipp the WSO and squeeze page part), how can I still force them to go through a squeeze page in this situation?

    thanks

    I Think Robert has got a point here. That's what I did previously. I created a product then scratch my heat where to find the targeted market. Thinking about it, it all comes with experience and planning.
    Good luck

    Seems to me like the WF is pretty much a goldmine if you have quality content. Why not make more WSOs? It won't be the same people who see it and respond each time.

      Create a blog in blogger.com put an op-tin box where you offer your free report and use organic traffic to that page.

      Cheers

    Hey icn,

    Why you bother to use BuySellAds.com to advertise your product on the decide niche blogs for just $30-$50/month , when if you get 50 Subscribers with the $50/month ad then you're profitable because obviously a subscriber is worth $1/month

      It's true, but I think there must be a cheaper way to promote a free report.

      I will try this method - but how long do you think it'll take to get it indexed and for the SEO the work out?

      Hmm, I heard of this website - but I think, affordable ones are not as good but good ones, they cost too much :/

      Well - the point of releasing the report is to capture more emails...So, no point sending them to my subscribers

      So yeah, if there are any more ideas - that'd be appreciated.

    Try with PPC traffic from 7Search.com. You can bid as low as $0.05 for your keywords there! I have used 7search to build my list, and I'm very satisfied!

      Interesting - can you actually get good keywords for as low as $0.05?

    You already know how to create a mega list...was my first impression.

    Anyway, you can always use the list you created from your free wsos to adswap with other warriors in the jv section

    Best place to learn is to purchase a few WSOs in my opinion.
